Winter 2019 Lifestyle Favourites: Beauty, Style and Health

I did not write  “monthly favourites” features  recently, so  I will try to combine my winter favourites  in one post. But since I could go on, and on I will be very strict with myself and will only allow 10 things. Wish me luck!

Oh, and happy 1st of March! How is it Spring already?

1 Perfume. 

In winter I really enjoyed trying new fragrances, reading about them, and listening to podcasts about perfumery. I especially loved these episodes about Jo Malone and Frederic Malle. I’ve acquired a few sample sets which let me try new scents. I had to move a few times in Autumn, and, unfortunately, lost my Turin/Sanchez perfume book (Amazon/Amazon UK) in the process, so will have to get a new, 2018 addition.  I also really want these little samples of Frederic Malle and Margiela magical creations. And a bottle of Le Labo Rose 31 (as seen here).

2. My Reds.

Would this even be a favourites feature from me without mentioning red nail varnishes? My two loves this winter were CND Creative Play Nail Lacquer in Red-Y To Roll, a true long-lasting red, a gorgeous classic, and Givenchy Le Vernis in 06 Carmi Escaprin, a punchy fiery orange based red.

3. Skincare Routine ( on Insta).

I am cheating here a bit, and just mentioning a lot of products but they all are phenomenal. I really have to write detailed reviews on each. But, so far, I can say that I’ve used them all for months and can see incredible results. Omorovicza Illuminating Moisturiser, Darphin Ideal Resource Light Re-Birth Overnight Cream, Anne Semonin Precious Serum, Lierac Mesolift Fatigue Correction Ultra Vitamin Enriched  Refreshing Serum. I swear by each product!

4. Good Mascaras.

My Birthday Wish List

I am not someone who is obsessed with [my] Birthday, and tell everyone about it. But since friends and family keep asking me what I want, it made sense to make a list, and share some of the things with you, too. I have chosen to post the items that may be of interest to you.  Maybe it will inspire you to get these things for yourself, or maybe you are just curious about what I want. I know I am always curious to see all those wish lists.

These Two

New Phone. I mainly use my phone for calling or sending messages, and  I use my iPad mini for everything else on the go. This is why I like phones like  Nokia and Blackberry qwerty. My F&F find it to be a really weird thing. But it is not gonna change, I would like a new phone like that, too.

I also need a new pair of red Dr Martens. I have been wearing Doc’s shoes for as long, as I remember. My black pair is still going strong but the red ones need a replacement.

Something To Read

I am an avid reader, so my list could be ridiculously long but I have chosen to post  only the relevant [for the website] items.  And I still don’t have any of these books yet.

Gentlewoman Magazine (from Amazon and Amazon UK). I haven’t read magazines in ages but this one seems like the one I would like.

Speaking of the gentlewomen, I would like the The New Garconne: How to Be a Modern Gentlewoman book   ( Amazon and Amazon UK) very much.

Round to Ours Setting the Mood and Cooking the Food Menus for Every Gathering (Amazon and Amazon UK), an amazing cook book, and tips on how to throw a great party.
